and then obviously special forces. but in reality, there was an fbi component and a lot of dissension between the fbi and the cia, bob. >> sure. >> well, the fbi doesn't -- >> go ahead. >> bob, go ahead. >> the fbi is against torture. it can't take the evidence and take it into court. an fbi agent who interrogated khalid sheik muhammad disagreed that torture got anyone anywhere. they're completely opposed to it. the cia was reluctant to use torture, too. it was the pentagon and also a result the mixed. >> do you fear this becomes the narrative, that people will see this and think, okay, waterboarding got bin laden? >> yeah. i mean, i think that's the bottom line. i don't think that's not the filmmaker's intent, and they have many other scenes in the movie about how the relationship with the foreign intelligence service derived a very important lead, the real name of bin laden's courier house, they tracked down the cell phones he was using and how human spies on the ground in pakistan tracked him to where he was hiding with bin laden and after that. but at the end of the day when somebody pulls someth

on the left said here is a bigelow movie. she has great information and intel from the f.b.i. from the f.b.i. building. when she makes an accurate portrayal of the movie where waterboarding takes place or information gleaned from enhanceed interrogation leads from the cour your to bin laden all of a sudden, wait, don't glorify waterboarding or torture. they want something different. liberals in hollywood and outside hollywood want a different depiction of how the info is. >> andrea: she has come under fire because she is accused of working closely with hollywood. she becomes the star of the movie. coincidence? greg, i got to ask you about this. new york magazine critic david edalstein brands "zero dark thirty" as morally reprehensible, because there is a scene with waterboarding. so shocker, just like the video you asked who pushed the video, trying to sensor another movie, because i guess they don't agree with it. >> greg: waterboarding more like awesome boarding. the unspeakable truth here is everybody wants -- they will never say this, but even wants torture on the table. if you ask a per

like alex gibney's great oscar-winning film "taxi to the dark side," you have a lot of fbi people, not cia, arguing that extreme interrogation doesn't work. that it makes people psychotic. that friendly interrogation, in fact, does a lot more to getting information. i don't think friendly interrogation, frankly, is quite as cinematic. >> did torture play an essential role in the hunt for bin laden? that's the question. dianne feinstein says unequivocally no. she spent three years looking at millions of pages of evidence. earlier she wrote, cia did not first learn about the existence of osama bin laden courier for detainees subjected to subjective interrogation techniques. instead, the cia learned of the existence of the courier, his true name and location, through means unrelated to the cia detention and interrogation program. that's after her statement, and one of the fbi interrogators who was successful in getting information from al qaeda detainees using noncoercive means has strongly criticized the cia's use of torture saying it didn't work. listen to what he says on "60 minut

. columbo could have solved this by now. they didn't send the fbi until what was it, you were all over t. five weeks after the hit on september 11th. the fbi was still not on site. it's all just bizarre. >> that's why we need anna wintour. let's put her in charge of the investigation. maybe she'll get the answers. at least she'll be dressed well. >> tell me about your radio show. what's up with that? >> a lot of great speculation. a bit of a high day tus hiatus. i'll announce what i'm doing in the next couple of days. >> everyone, calm down. they're like you've abandoned us. i haven't abandoned us. >> you haven't given us any notice. >> i like to keep people guessing, greta. one minute it will be santorum in a sweater vest. the next thing it will be muppets. >> greta, you know my xylophone career. i got rejected from the boston pops and the symphony. ed it was my first love. if i didn' doesn't work out, i'k to the radio. >> any chance it's th it's tv? >> i'm not going to say anything about it. >> that was sort of an unusual -- >> this is my tv gig, greta. radio is my love right after mod

is going to debunk that. and i know every expert i've talked to in the fbi, and in the cia, glenn carl for example told me none of this torture worked. none of this enhanced interrogation worked. it did not, as cheney has alleged, lead to the killing of bin laden. it was counterproductive. it was damaging to our reputation and he's still lying about it. >> we haven't heard the last of that, have we? >> no, we haven't. >> how aggressive do you think lawmakers ought to be with that report? >> i think it ought to be at least portions of it, just like i thought the 9/11 commission portions of it should be made public. if we're not going to hold people accountable, we should at least let the american people know what was done in their name that basically constituted war crimes. >> getting back to cheney for a moment, his vision of international intervention, do you think that that really illustrates where the republican party is? >> i think the republican party is lost right now. wandering in the desert, as it were.

fbi and gm? >> yes, we do. >> what would the application be that you made up for the fbi? >> for the fbi, it's a lot about communicating with the public, educating on what the government is doing and really opening up that two-way communication with the citizens and the other people. >> same with gm and att too, then, it's a thread that you're communicating with the public. >>initiated on the sales and marketing. how am i using mobile to communicate with my customers. now year also seeing mobile now transition into companies and how they're actually running their company or what they're company is doing, integrating products with hardware and apps and all these kinds of things. >> how many d disdigit applications are using. >> we help august mebtd their business with how that translates into a long-term mobile vision and then we hope to go in and implement and execute that. so everything is really tailored for each business as specific to their needs. >> what could you do for "squawk box" or for joe kearn, could you think about that and come back and tell me? >> vertical

is big lots. turns out the fbi is investigating because there is a 10 million dollar stock sale by the company ceo done ahead of a negative report. that is why the manhattan u.s. attorney with subpoena is looking to this. why would he sell ahead of negative reports, a $10 million stock sale? not good. number one loser in the s&p 500. back to you. ashley: all right, nicole. interesting. thanks very much. we'll be back in 15 minutes. tracy: tough new talk on the fiscal cliff. why house speaker boehner says president obama is deliberately pushing the country over it. ashley: all right. first look how the dollar is moving right now as we finish another week of trading. a mixed bag but the euro, pulling back against the dollar, below that 1.30 mark. we'll be right back. music is a universal language. but when i was in an accident... i was worried the health care system spoke a language all its own with unitedheahcare, i gohelp that fit my life. information on my phone. connection to doctors o get where i'm from. and tools to estimate what my care may cost. so i never missed a beat. w
